Boston College is a mid-sized Jesuit school located on the outskirts of Boston. I visited BC in the summer of 2022 and I can tell you it is a beautiful campus. Did you know that BC has a one-acre campus in Dublin, Ireland? A $3.7B endowment is something to consider too. Here are some unique features of Boston College:

  • Rigorous academics: Boston College is best known for its rigorous academics, with eight schools offering BAs, BSs, graduate and doctorate degrees.

  • Innovative core curriculum: Boston College students are taught by committed faculty invested in their education through an innovative core curriculum.

  • Diversity: Boston College has a diverse student body, with students coming from all over the country and the world.

  • No Greek life: Unlike many other colleges, Boston College has no Greek life, which means there are no pressures to find a group and segment oneself.

  • Educating the person as a whole: Boston College is all about educating the person as a whole, with a strong core curriculum that ensures all students receive a well-rounded education.

Overall, Boston College provides its students with a broad range of academic programs, supportive career services, attractive insurance products, tuition remission opportunities, health and wellbeing benefits, alumni benefits, and a variety of student organizations. The college's commitment to providing comprehensive benefits helps ensure that students have access to the resources they need to succeed, both during their time at the college and after graduation.

According to the Boston College website, the acceptance rate for the Class of 2025 was 15% . The average SAT score for students who are accepted is between 1420-1530. Boston College offers early action, early decision, and regular decision application options, with deadlines in November and January.
